I bought this product to replace a very old Lite-on dvd recorder when my region recently switched over to digital. I've had it about a month now and am so far very impressed. Picture and sound quality are excellent which naturally was my main requirement. Setup was simple, just connected it to my Samsung TV using a HDMI cable and followed the on screen instructions.
To configure the remote to operate your TV just follow the instruction booklet to the letter but don't expect to see anything on the screen while doing this as I did. It just works.
The HDD is huge and I haven't come close to filling it up yet, it will record about 250 hours in SP mode. The unit looks good and is very quiet and is unnoticeable while watching a recorded program on the TV.
One minor niggle is that the auto chapter setting which I've set at every 15 minutes only seems to work on the DVD drive and not on the HDD but maybe I'm doing something wrong there. You can set chapter marks manually using the remote.

All in all I'm very happy with the LG RHT599H and would recommend it.

I WAS A BIT DUBIOUS ABOUT BUYING THIS UNIT AFTER READING SEVERAL REVIEWS ABOUT IT. OK, I'V HAD IT ABOUT A MONTH AND TWO THINGS STAND OUT AS GRIM; THE WAITING TIME BEFORE ANYTHING HAPPENS AFTER PRESSING THE KEY PAD IS PAINFULLY SLOW, SEVERAL TIMES I THOUGHT THE UNIT HAD RETIRED FOR THE DAY. THE KEY PAD -- OH DEAR! OK FOR CHILDRENS FINGERS BUT VERY FRUSTRATING FOR A GROWN MALE. THE KEYS ARE TOO SMALL, MUCH TOO SMALL. HOWEVER, GOOD POINTS OUTWEIGH THE BAD; EASY HDD RECORDING AND PLAYBACK, AS IS DVD, FIRST TIME SETUP DOES ITSELF, HDMI TAKES SEVERAL MINUTES, PLENTY OF ONSCREEN INFORMATION, EXCELLENT SIZE HDD... AFTER READING REVIEWS OF A NUMBER OF OTHER RECORDERS AND THEIR DOWNFALLS, I'M GETTING USED TO THE TWO GRIM POINTS OF THE 599H AND CONSIDER THE UNIT A VERY GOOD BUY.

Received this today. Very well packaged, promptly delivered and a good price (£14 less than when I first checked it out a couple of weeks ago) - £190.
Bought to replace our vintage LG VCR/DVD player which still works fine but is hopelessly out of date now, and a bit of a brick.
Setup was very straightforward. We have Virginmedia so it was just a case of unplugging the old VCR and plugging this one in. It automatically searched for channels but once it had found the cable feed I stopped it looking further. Although it has Freeview+ built-in we won't be using it unless Virgin wacks the subs up too high! There are tons of bells and whistles so we started by just making sure we had it connected up correctly so as to see TV this evening with the recorder turned on and turned off (i.e. pass through). No problem.
We then tried a brief recording just to learn how to do it and, again, it's very straightforward as long as you read through the relevant bit in the brief but sufficient manual. Frankly, once you've set up one recording it's pretty much second nature and logical. One pleasant surprise was the lack of tape noise (obviously!). 500Gb seems loads of space (compared to our old 3 hours max) but I'm sure we'll soon be filling it with all sorts of stuff.
Next step will be burning to DVD.
A very neat, trim piece of kit.
If I can work out how to do it I will update this review as we try out all its capabilities over the next few weeks.

update 6th April, 2013
Continuing to work well. Copying (dubbing) to DVD very simple and fast - as long as you remember to set it to the 'fast' option. I set my first DVD copy to SP (standard play) so it played the recording and dubbed it in real time. My second one took about 4 minutes for a recording of about 1hr 40mins.

I bought this machine for a relative to replace an ageing recorder. He finds it a great way to record on the fly but also uses the built in DVD burner to archive programmes he wishes to keep, which of course is excellent if you are prone to buying DVD releases from the BBC etc. He loves it and thinks it's great.

I bought this LG as i had bought my partner an LG for Christmas and he has nothing but praise for it. I have bought the same brand but upped the HDD storage. I have found that,from scratch,the LG has been very easy to use and the instructions are very easy to follow. The recording quality is very good but i have only used the XP setting for the quality as i have not recorded vast amounts that would require me to lengthen it to LP or more. The LG is respectably quiet and the only time that i hear it is when i switch the TV off for the night and then you can just make out the hum of the machine. It is a reasonable size but thin and very slick looking. The first set up is very easy as well as it virtually does it by itself. I have only used the HDD to record onto but i have used the DVD player to watch DVDs and that is as you would expect from any DVD player. I would recommend this item to anyone who has to buy a new recorder to replace a broken item or just needs to,as i had to,upgrade so that i they can carry on watching and recording after the Digital switchover.

I decided to buy this machine due to one of cost and that it handled dvd ram discs, as I had a few from using a previous machine. I found it pretty simple to set up and use. The storage has proven to be more than enough for me and if I need to archive a recording then I can copy it to a dvd disc easily.

I did try the setting to get the maximum duration that can be recorded on the HD but found that obviously the quality dropped quite drastically. I found leaving it in LP mode gives me more than 400 hrs of recording time without noticable quality degradation.

Would I buy another if I needed to, yes I would!
